Phebe Harding was born in April 1710 in Eastham, Barnstable, Province of Massachusetts Bay, the daughter of Amaziah and Hannah (Rogers) Harding. [1]

Phebe married Benjamin Rogers in Plymouth on 13 October 1732.[2] Benjamin was born on 19 November 1704 in Harwich, the son of John and Priscilla (Hamblin) Rogers, and also a descendant of Mayflower passenger Thomas Rogers. Phebe and Benjamin were second cousins.[3]

She was named in her father's will, dated 20 Apr 1734, about six weeks before his execution for killing Phebe's mother. The will was proved on 05 July 1734. In it he named, among others, his daughters Elizabeth Fish, Hannah Fish and Phebe Rogers.[4]

Phebe was still living in 1747 in Kingston when her last child was born,[3] and when administration on the estate of Benjamin Rogers late of Kingston, deceased, was granted to John Brewster of Kingston, innholder, on 02 February 1747/8. The inventory was dated 23 February 1747/8 and mentioned provisions for his widow. An undated petition of Phebe Rogers of Kingston stated that Benjamin died leaving her with six small children.[3]
